9 JOEY DEVLIN

3B-P, Broad Run, Sr.

2 CHRIS DZURILLA

P-OF, Stone Bridge, Jr.

1 WADE GELBERT

13 CASEY HARTMAN

P-CF, Potomac Falls, Sr.

6 RUSTY SMITH

OF, Heritage, Jr.

Coach Plank Says: "Our leadoff batter and a good base runner with great instincts. Without question, he was our most consistent player throughout the summer."

12 JAMES TIMBERS

LF, Stone Bridge, Sr.
